Fines and Infringements

How to pay or appeal your infringement notice


If you have received an infringement notice you have 28 days from the date of issue to pay or appeal your infringement.

Once the initial 28 days have passed additional fees will apply and a Final Notice will be issued. You will then have an additional 28 days to pay or appeal the infringement.

Once the second 28 day period has passed, the infringement will no longer be able to be paid. 

Unpaid infringements will be passed on to the Fines Enforcement Registry. If your fine is overdue please contact the Fines Enforcement Registry for more information.

Infringement Notices are issued under the Public Transport Authority Regulations 2003 and the Government Railways (Parking Stations) By-Law 1997
